Due to lockdown2 here in Guernsey we are once again asking anyone needing our services to contact us on 01481 257261 before visiting the GSPCA. This is so we can risk assess and potentially help remotely without unnecessary travel while we are in the very serious situation the Bailiwick currently faces.

With huge challenges on our resources due to the pandemic and a drop in income from boarding and donations please help us help animals in Guernsey by donating online via -

We have put a helpful table together to help explain our current services at this time, which are constantly being reviewed -

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We are all struggling with the current lockdown and with over 300+ animals in our care and the need to ensure we can provide our 24/7 emergency service we have had to adjust our services inline with the current restrictions.”

“Our priority is to animal welfare and to our community and having worked through the last lockdown we know that working together we can get through this.”

“The essential team members are working with additional protective equipment and we have actually continued many social distancing practices and heightened biosecurity during the pandemic just in case there was a second wave.”

“We have had an incredibly difficult year both in terms of operating but also raising the much needed funds to run our 24/7 services caring for and helping thousands of animals.”

“To continue to appeal for support for our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal and to donate to our work and the care of the many animals please call 01481 257261, at the GSPCA, Rue des Truchots, St Andrews, Guernsey GY6 8UD or online .”

“To help ensure we can help animals 24/7 why not become a regular sponsor to help animals like the 3 seal pups during these extremely difficult days and to find out more please visit .”

“Next Friday starts #GSPCAPurpleWeek celebrating 148 years since we were founded.”

“Although many of the ideas we have shared might not be able to be carried out that you can see on our page we really hope islanders will get involved and support our essential work helping animals and the community.”
